Church of God Of Prophecy Baptism 2014

The Church of God of Prophecy celebrated their Baptism rituals at the Thornhill Baptist Church in Calgary this past October. ¬†Eleven¬†young men and women transitioned into the next stage of their Christian lives. In the Baptism ritual, immersion in water, symbolizes purification or regeneration and admission to the Christian Church. Pastor Vibert Dawkins and other leaders of the Church led the flock in prayers and music. One by one the participants gave testimonials for wanting conversion followed by the immersion. At times tears, of joy accompanied their testimonials. At the end of the ceremonies, the newly blessed and baptized were ‘Welcomed’ into the Church of God of Prophecy.
